Pace Review

Pace can be found tucked away on Laurel Canyon Boulevard, Los Angeles. This quaint Italian restaurant provides a discrete hideaway for celebs, offering a relaxed feeling of privacy.

The intimate surroundings of Pace are adorned with stunning photography of past and present rock stars, and a vast collection of vinyl records are scattered amongst the space, creating a quirky and unusual interior design style.

We were greeted by a friendly waiter, who efficiently showed us to our table. As another quirky twist, the tables at Pace are lined with brown paper, and a pot of crayons are supplied - should the diner feel creative between courses!

“The chef was certainly out to impress with these dishes”

We ordered a bottle of 2013 Malbec, Sottano, Mendoza, Argentina, and enjoyed a glass whilst perusing the menu. We decided to try the house minestrone to start, which came served with pesto and parmigiano; as well as the homemade ravioli with lobster and burrata, served in a roasted winter squash and leek vegetable broth.

The chef was certainly out to impress with these dishes, which were rich and fresh in flavour, and wonderfully presented. We thoroughly enjoyed every mouthful.

For our first main courses, we opted for Pace’s ‘famous’ cedar wood grilled salmon, which came served with seasoned shallots, fresh herbs, lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil. It became obvious very quickly as to why this dish is described as ‘famous’ - it was absolutely delicious and a real highlight to the meal.

That being said, main course number two didn’t fail to deliver either, as we thoroughly enjoyed the grilled Niman Ranch, grass fed, rib eye, served on a bed of farm arugula.

As side dishes, we chose the Brussels sprouts and roasted potatoes, which were equally delectable.

We were more than impressed with Pace, and it is certainly a restaurant that we would love to return to. This restaurant offers that special intimate and private space that is a little bit different, and serves delicious food. It’s a great find.
